I am a German Manila-based visual craftsman. After some extended traveling around the world working with different creative teams, I still feel the excitement of various assignments, countries and most and for all the drive to take pictures.
I try to focus on street photography and to balance work and private photojournalism. It is how I like to create and develop a distinctive photographic language that combines my skills and my love for traveling and the use of different mediums to create images.
My style today is very straightforward and simple. I tend to create vivid images that have a ‘documentary’ look, but I also love to experiment, as this is where I get an opportunity to explore and push myself further. The combination of different areas of photography keeps me going and helps me stay in love with photography.
Street Photography and painting with light seems more appropriate in my approach to photography than anything else. I'm not a soldier, not a hunter, so I don't catch or capture things. Apart from Exhibitions with different artists in the various countries the two last Solo Exhibition have been in Hong Kong at the Cultural Centre and the Fringe Club.
Here are some of my asian exhibitions and some articles from the press:
Hong Kong exhibition at the Fringe Club my exhibition (S)exposure.
S is the luminous exposure (usually in lux seconds)
E is the image-plane illuminance (usually in lux)
x is not only the exposure time but as well the unknown factor
Thinking that modern European life-style does not create Hanoi’s charm but the old heritage does, Matthias Meyer has given viewers a new and interesting insight into Hanoi and Paris through photos showcased at the “Disorientation – A Little Paris in Hanoi” exhibition. The exhibition took place at the Goethe Institute (56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street) in Hanoi.
